Thinkorswim Point and Figure Charts


One of our viewers submitted this as a project request:

I have enjoyed watching the videos you posted to youtube. I was wondering if there is a way you can write a script for Tinkorswim to have a point and figure chart like is seen at stockcharts?,P&listNum=
It would show the pattern at the top and the price target which is not seen in the apple chart. I thing you have to be a member at Stockcharts to see it.

Hi Rick,

Thanks for taking the time to submit your project request.

For most trading platforms the Point & Figure charts are built into the platform and they are considered a chart style. Not an indicator or chart study.

It is not possible to create a Point and Figure (P&F) chart from the thinkscript used to write custom chart studies on the Thinkorswim trading platform. In order for P&F chart to be added to Thinkorswim this will have to be written into the platform by their developers.

Which means the only way to get P&F charts added to the platform is if a large number of users submit this to TDA support as a feature request. How do I do this? Go to

Then log into your account and follow the instructions on the screenshots below.
